Ask SSC What do I do with an old mattress?



Q. What should I do with an old mattress?

A: Dear Frank,

Items like an old mattress beyond reuse or repair can be set out next to your garbage Toter® for pickup. Extra fees apply (see below). For larger volumes, or items too large for curbside pickup, visit one of our three transfer stations or use our You Call—We Haul junk hauling service. For longer-term projects we also rent dumpsters and drop boxes. More info here.

Curbside Pickup—Exact rate depends on item and size. Please contact us for an estimate or to schedule a pickup.

SSC Recycling Centers/Transfer Stations—Variety of items are accepted for a small fee. Hours vary. Please call first. For a complete list of accepted items click here.

You Call We Haul—junk hauling service. A variety of items are accepted including appliances, furniture and electronics. No minimum charge. Weekend service is available. Please contact us for an estimate or to schedule a pick-up. More info here.

For questions or more information, please contact us or call (360) 734-3490. Thank you.
